Searching with Google by Reading Level

One thought on “Searching with Google by Reading Level

  1. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the
    structure of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
